C-41 is standard color chemistry. Any lab still doing film should be able to handle it. I never did color film, only Cibachrome prints so can’t help with this.

Sadly they can play with useless eye candy AR but can’t fix the useless stats bugs from years ago that we actually need and want to work properly

What’s the ruling from the UX expert? Unroll from over the top or underneath?

government support for low income, no income, & small business. Some resistance to Covid measures are pragmatic not dogmatic. Stay home and get evicted work and pay rent. The stats on people filing unemployment claims and waiting since March for their first payment is shocking

I have to have an iPad as the primary account for the home and invite the owner and myself as “guests”. Too many edge conditions whet you can’t provision unless you are they primary HomeKit user

No it doesn’t. Very restrictive use case

They probably loved you for giving then an excuse to rip it all out and replace with more expensive proprietary gear. Too bad it wasn’t Control 4, at least they have a lot more drivers notes for 3rd party gear that can work

Related topic is how to give temporary or permanent access to guests, renters, and service providers (dealers/installers). Not an easy problem and bigger systems have tools and products for this, but 2FA and platform security (e.g. AppleID) make this harder

Have you found any power strips that can control the USB ports? Would love to use USB plugs as smartswitches given so many devices have USB power options now.

My two Gold’s are sitting in their box for two weeks. No time to work on them yet. How far out is your delivery? Maybe swap ahead one with you if you need it now?

The Dream Machine is shotgun wedding of consumer gear with pro-envy. Different internal OS & they haven’t backported all features. My USG is limping along -hope to hold out for the successor which is in beta. In the meantime, playing with new Firewalla for segmentation and VPNs

Funny to see ADT and “smart” in the same sentence.

are you open to clarification/details on HomeKit camera recording? So much was left out of your brief mention on the podcast, but also a few things they were inaccurate and misleading. I’ve been testing many iot camera systems

Installing a landline (VoCable) because my other half wants a real telephone line. Lost a very long battle on that, but meanwhile installing my first Sonos ARC for my lab to see how it measures up. So far, very impressed and haven’t hooked up rear surrounds or subwoofer yet.

Shhhh! Don’t give false hope they can add monthly fees to give us the support we should have had a long time ago!

I agree. Some people think any marketing is wrong. Easy to say when you choose ad-support instead of paid apps as your monetization. Oh, and no tech support because the app dev doesn’t want to bother isn’t sleazy? Someone speaks with bias from their podcast perch

The new Pro router is in early access. That might be a better approach as the evolution of the USG than switching to the less capable “Dream” platform. I might be tempted but my 1gbit Firewalla just showed up begging to be tested with more VPN and segmentation capabilities

Any music options under consideration other than bringing a portable speaker back and forth?
